I need to give a PDF presentation but I want to include some videos in between some of the slides.
Is there a PDF viewer which will allow me to play videos in between slides for a presentation?
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
you can use latex-beamer. you can install it if it's not usig:
sudo apt-get install latex-beamer
you can get the official documentation of beamer from here.
This tex question would help you to achieve that
To view the ouput pdf you can use Okular, you can install it:
sudo apt-get install okular
Read this also, this would help
The accepted answer works on Ubuntu 14.04, but I will outline another solution as given here.
sudo apt-get install cmake libgstreamer0.10-dev libgee-dev valac-0.16 libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev librsvg2-dev libpoppler-glib-dev libgtk2.0-dev sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg git clone https://github.com/davvil/pdfpc.git cd pdfpc git submodule init git submodule update mkdir build cd build cmake ../ make -j8 sudo make install
Then include the video in beamer like so:
And open the pdf like so:
pdfpc is nice for giving presentations as it includes things like a timer and a dual output for two displays, one for controls, one for the projector output. As far as I can tell, it is stable and doesn't crash.
